The new report shows that to make cities resilient and to realise the human rights to water and sanitation for urban residents, we need to focus on water and sanitation integrity. The reports is packed with case studies and ideas on how to do that in different organisations. We’ll be discussing key messages and strategies at our launch. Link to the session.
